SAN FRANCISCO -- Seattle Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice and guard Robert Gallery are inactive for the season opener against the San Francisco 49ers.

The two were among Seattle's biggest offseason acquisitions. Rice has been bothered by a sore shoulder and Gallery has a sprained right knee suffered in the preseason finale against Oakland.

Golden Tate started in Rice's place, and Paul McQuistan took Gallery's spot.

For the 49ers, starting free safety Dashon Goldson was among the inactives. He hasn't practiced since last week because of a sore knee. Madieu Williams started in his place.
